Lady Gaga will perform in Israel because not everyone is as principled as the Backstreet Boys

Lady Gaga is going to Israel! And she just recorded a video about how excited she is.

Shalom. This is lady Gaga. I’m so excited to perform my new tour in Tel Aviv. I’ll see you soon, Israel.

A couple questions.  Is Gaga using a teleprompter? It kind of looks like it. And this is her excited? She doesn’t exactly scream kvelling! I’d hate to see what she looks like when she’s not pumped to do something.  I get it. poker face. I assume she’s using shalom in the “hello” sense and not in the “goodbye” or “peace” sense, right?

Has she read the mission statement of her own Born This Way foundation?

the Born This Way Foundation was founded in 2011 to foster a more accepting society, where differences are embraced and individuality is celebrated. The Foundation is dedicated to creating a safe community that helps connect young people with the skills and opportunities they need to build a kinder, braver world.

We believe that everyone has the right to feel safe, to be empowered and to make a difference in the world. Together, we will move towards acceptance, bravery and love.

Not sure performing in Israel is the best way to help create a kinder world where everyone has the right to feel safe. Guess she needs to add a “void where prohibited” disclaimer.

In all fairness, The Backstreet Boys Backstreet Boys, Paul Anka, America and Neil Young all cited security reasons and not political ones in canceling their tour. And Lady Gaga isn’t exactly known for her political astuteness or coherence. She once declared, “I’m not a feminist. I hail men, I love men, I celebrate American male culture — beer, bars, and muscle cars.” Because, FYI, feminism requires abstaining from beer, bars, muscle cars and men. Then she came out as “a little bit of a feminist.” So… there’s that.
